This branch remodel will allow us to do just that. We believe the investment we made to remodel and modernize this facility, is an investment and commitment to this community.”
In addition to a full-service retail branch, the West Frank location services commercial banking, commercial lending, as well as Southside’s Wealth Management and Trust department for the Southeast Texas region.
